[FAQ - All You Need] GT-S7560M Galaxy Ace II x / Ace2x
Welcome to the Samsung Galaxy Ace II x / GT-S7560M Unofficial FAQ!
Frequently Asked Questions:
"Flash with CWM
" : If you still have the stock recovery, download and use Daver18qc's Root Kit Below to install CWM.
"Flash with ODIN
" : ODIN is inside Daver18qc's Root Kit
"Push with ADB
" : You need to download and install Android's Development Kit
and then refer to the small tutorial below !
If you've got problems with ODIN or ADB, make sure that you have USB Debugging Enabled
under Settings > Developer Options.
--Make sure you have only 1 device showing in ODIN (Only 1 little square filled at the top-left)
--Also make sure Kies.exe
is not running on the computer!
5- There is a JellyBean ROM! (CyanogenMOD 10.2) Look below for details ! Also KitKat is being worked on by SeannyM.
6- There is NO free method to UNLOCK SIM yet.
7- If you want to flash any kind of modded rom with CWM, you must first flash the complete corresponding ROM from SamMobile. That means my deodexed Guatemala need to be flashed over the stock Guatemala, not over Panama or Canada. Same goes for deodexed Australia and CyanogenMOD 10.1
If you get a Yellow warning triangle
on boot after flashing something, use TriangleAway
to remove it and reset the flash counter to 0. (On the page, use TriangleAway-v3.05.apk)
9- Flashing a ROM from Guatemala or Australia will not change your service provider
, you will stay with Bell/Koodo/Rogers even if these companies don't exist in Guatemala.
Sometimes when flashing ROMS, your carrier will show as "Bell
" even though you are on Virgin / Solo
, this is normal
as these are 2 sub-companies of Bell.
When you flash ANYTHING
, be sure to Wipe Cache
and Wipe Dalvik Cache
) before rebooting.
For ANY kind of flashing
from your computer, you will need the Samsung USB Drivers
first and foremost, before doing anything else.

SeannyM's Overclocked/Modded Kernels For Stock ROM(Flash with CWM)
-A vast range of frequencies to choose from, you can start with 1094mhz and if your phone is stable and doesn't reboot on it's own you can then go up a couple more until you get to a point where your phone won't boot, then you need to go back down in frequencies.
Most people seem to hit a wall around 1248mhz.
-To take full advantage of this Kernel, you should install No-Frills CPU Control
--Set the maximum frequency to the maximum possible
--Set the minimum to 240 or 320
--Set the governor to SmartAssV2
--Set the I/O sheculer to VR

You can deodex and customize almost any ROM made for this phone using this version of the Kitchen.
You will need a computer running Linux, either on the hard drive or in a virtual machine inside Windows.
You will need extensive knowledge of the Linux commands as everything is inside a terminal (a kind of MS-DOS command prompt)
If you don't know what Linux is, don't bother, this is out of your reach and nobody will teach you here.
Learn it somewhere else and come back here when you know where you're going with this.
DOWNLOAD 0.223 KITCHEN
DOWNLOAD EDIFY_DEFS FILE
-(The EDIFY_DEFS file is necessary to make a working ROM, you will softbrick your phone
if you don't put this file inside your edify-defs folder in the kitchen folder.)
MANY THANKS TO : SeannyM, Codename13, OstrichX and all the others who made this possible!
